(x) David Douglas Duncan: A Great Photographer’s Korean War
An American Marine sleeps in his halted jeep while a puppy whines in his ear during the retreat from the Chosin Reservoir, December 1950. // “This,” Duncan told LIFE.com of a picture made during the fight for Seoul, “is the best picture I made in Korea of civilians — a family running down stairs, a father holding a baby, tanks firing away. Those tanks are taking fire from North Koreans right down the street!”

Photos taken by Robert Capa during the Normandy Landings, later known as part of the “Magnificent Eleven.”
Although Capa took over one hundred photos during the initial landings on June 6th, a darkroom technician accidently ruined most of the film during processing. All but eleven of the photos taken were lost.
